Setting dataset scope for filters

To enable Dataset filter scope, you must set the Dataset Scope option. We used the sample dataset World Population & GDP Trends.

Follow these steps to set dataset scope in a dashboard:

  1. Open an existing or new dashboard in Edit mode. We used the sample dataset US State Population.
  2. Switch to the Filters menu.
  3. Create a new filter widget see, Creating dataset filters on dashboards or Creating custom filters on dashboards

    We created a filter widget based on the dimension state.

    The filter widget appears at the top of the app.

  4. Hover over the top right corner of the new state filter widget, and click on the Gear icon to configure the filter.
  5. In the Settings modal window, select the Scope tab.

Send Parameters with Dataset Scope

This option is only available for dashboard filters that are based on dataset fields, not on custom filter widgets.

When selected, the All Datasets option ensures that the dashboard filtering is consistent for all visuals that share this filter's dataset.

This is the default for new filters.

  1. Click Apply.
